Palo Verde students battled it out during the week of March 14th-18th for Battle of the Sexes. Battle of the sexes is an annual competition between our male and female panthers that determines who the best gender is.
Students kicked off the competition wearing either Floral or Camo prints. Students also joined in a few jump rope competitions during lunch. On Monday, after school, Palo held a movie night on the soccer field featuring one of Disney’s hit movie, “Teen Beach Movie.”
On Tuesday, students dressed up as either bikers or surfers to tie into the Teen Beach Movie theme. The lunch time activity consisted of hair braiding and tie tying competitions.
On Wednesday, Palo when back to the hit early 2000s show Gossip Girl and dressed up as Blair and Chuck. During lunch students had the chance to stuff sprinkled covered marshmallows in their mouths as they played Chubby Bunny.
On Thursday, students showed off their gender pride as they wore pink (to represent the girls) and blue (for the boys.) During lunch, students enjoyed a game of soccer, as well as Palo student’s favorite assembly.
At the assembly, the bleachers were lined with posters such as “Anything you can do I can do better” and “bros before bows and curls before girls.” Boys executed hilariously funny dances and even beatboxed to “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Girls on the cheer and dance teams practiced for weeks to kick the boy’s behinds in flawlessly executed performances. In the end, the boys took the title, breaking the girls’ three year consecutive winning streak. It doesn’t just take a cutely decorated hallway and more school spirit to pull it all off, ladies.
Finally, students go galactic for Friday’s theme: Star Wars. Students dressed up as either Anakin Skywalker or Princess Leia for their last day before spring break. Palo’s Student Council set up an exciting game of Freeze Tag, to bring teenagers back to their childhood days.
All in all, the annual Battle of the Sexes was highly anticipated and did not disappoint.
